As of January 2019, the X MAX Starry is on its third version. The updated model now includes haptic feedback to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature, an improved mouthpiece, and more. Check out the full breakdown of these changes over on our blog post announcing the X MAX Starry Version 3.
Who's the X MAX Starry for?
The X MAX Starry is for anyone looking for a quality portable vaporizer at a great price. Full digital control, a pocketable size, swappable battery, haptic feedback, a magnetic, zirconia mouthpiece and an anodized aluminum body. The Starry delivers features that we don’t see in vaporizers at twice the price.
POTV limited edition
We're big fans of the Starry and teamed up with X-MAX to re-work the style. All black with discreet CNC'd logos. The only difference is the styling.
The Starry vaporizer is powered by a single 18650 battery (included) that is removable so you can just swap it out and keep going all day, but you might not rush out to buy a spare since we got 80 minutes of run time off a single charge. You can’t ask for much more than great battery life and the option to swap in a fresh battery when needed! And we love removable batteries because you can just swap in a new one versus having to send your vaporizer in for warranty if your battery ever dies.
Well made & pocketable
Tired of the sea of plastic shell vapes on the market at this price point? This is where the Starry really stands apart with its anodized aluminum body, magnetic lid enclosure and ceramic zirconia mouthpiece. The size is right, too, coming in at just a smidge bigger than the PAX 3.
Fast heat-up time
The Starry gets up to 390° F in just 25 seconds and to top temp in 35 seconds, perfect for a quick, discreet session.
X MAX has been producing quality vaporizers for the budget vape market for a while now and the Starry sticks to the script with a standard ceramic conduction oven that tastes good and works fast. Your herbs and vapor touch nothing but ceramic and stainless steel.
The Starry’s controls are simple and make sense with three buttons to control on/off, temperature, session timer and Celsius/Fahrenheit display. Turning it on is as simple as holding the power button in for three seconds. Plus, the Starry will buzz gently to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature.
Easy to load. Cool mouthpiece.
Loading is easy with its beveled oven ring and you won’t worry about losing the mouthpiece since it can magnetically stick to the side when open. The ceramic zirconia mouthpiece is strong and super smooth for a comfortable feel that preserves taste.
There are a number of vapes in this price range, but the Starry really stands out. Featuring a pocketable size, great build quality, removable batteries, and a magnetic zirconia mouthpiece it has features that you won’t find in some of our favorite vapes at more than twice the price. It really is one of the best values in the vape market!
The Starry vaporizer has a 1-year warranty when purchased from Planet of the Vapes and, as with all vaporizers purchased from us, you are also covered by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Great value but you need to give it time
I love the magnetic top and overall it has a great feel. On first use, I was not impressed with the performance as my X-max Pro 2 gave off much better clouds. I did notice the heat-up rate was much faster but is misleading as I still had to wait after at temp to get good vapor. Think this is due to wider chamber take product a bit to warm up. After about 20 sessions I have noticed the vapor delivery is getting much better and equal to X-max Pro. For the price, you can’t go wrong with this but don’t expect big clouds right away unless you crank the heat.
Cheap and Chincey
I had this product for one day, during which time I realized it is cheaply made. The mouthpiece feels like it will break off easily, and the battery compartment would not stay closed. Fortunately, they let me exchange it for a Boundless CF, which is MUCH better.
Wonderful Product, Wonderful Service.
The X MAX Starry Vaporizer POTV (V3) is proving to be everything I was expecting, thanks for the excellent reviews that did a wonderful job of representing the product. GREAT customer service, which is so scarce these days. Thanks!
Hi maintenance, shoddy mouthpiece
The mouthpiece seems like it is designed to fail and sell replacement parts. There are three different screens that are constantly clogging and difficult to change. Within the first month, the plastic cracked (maybe the heat, or having to constantly clean the screens?), a magnet came lose and now the mouthpiece won't seat properly and the vaporizer is unusable. Redesign the mouthpiece and keep it simple and easy to clean (like the Pax 2) and I'd rate this a 5. As of now, the X Max Starry is out of commission and I don't want to sink any more money in this vaporizer until I'm given a better mouthpiece alternative.
Hi Charles, Washing the V3 Starry mouthpiece in alcohol will cause this issue. We'll get you out a new mouthpiece, Charles, but in the future, please clean with warm water and mild dishwashing detergent only. Creating a service ticket for you now. With best regards, Larry
Bought 2 Because They’re Great!
After trying a half dozen other vapes over the past couple of years, I gave this a try and it’s by far the best vape I’ve had yet. Easy to fill, clean, and charge. It just works!
